In the event of a severe winter storm, the Regional Rail Winter Storm Service Plan will be placed into effect. The plan is designed to improve service coverage and help alleviate crush loads for customers trying to depart Center City during midday hours and to help maintain service in the event of a severe storm.

We've identified two possible weather related situations that will alter our normal Weekday Regional Rail schedules:
In the event the City of Philadelphia calls for the early closure of the Central Business District
SEPTA will take 9 trains from the PM schedule and move the service to MIDDAY to accommodate people leaving early (scroll down to view the early exit schedule)
These trains will NOT operate in their regular PM time period
The rest of the Weekday schedule will remain the same
The Early Exit schedule will ONLY be in effect if SEPTA notifies customers by 10:00 a.m., on the day of the storm
In the event of a forecast calling for high snow accumulations, high winds, and very icy conditions
Regional Rail will operate on a SATURDAY SCHEDULE
Enhanced Wilmington/Newark Line schedule with service to Newark and Churchmans Crossing Stations in the State of Delaware (view the complete schedule here)
Cynwyd Line service will not operate
SEPTA will notify customers by 4:00 p.m. the day before the storm if the SATURDAY SCHEDULE will be in effect. This will not be subject to reversal once announced
Customers should check this page or the Winter Weather General Plan on the SEPTA website, sign up to receive SEPTA Twitter Service Alerts for your Regional Rail Line, listen for platform announcements at your station, sign up with READYNOTIFYPA, and stay tuned to local media outlets for the latest service information. Information will also be posted on System Status (look for the snowflake icon at the top of the page) and TrainView.
UNLESS AN OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT IS MADE BY SEPTA, AS NOTED ABOVE, REGULAR SEPTA REGIONAL RAIL SERVICE WILL OPERATE DURING STORM CONDITIONS
Customers can receive real-time information for their Regional Rail Line on Twitter. Follow your Regional Rail Line or view other official SEPTA Twitter handles on the Customer Twitter Service Feeds page.
